Year 2 trip to Delaine Buses Deport

Published: 14th March 2024

On Thursday, Year 2 had an exciting trip to Delaine Buses depot and museum as part of our history topic on local transport. We walked from school to the bus stop and boarded a double decker bus which took us to their depot where we were met by Mr Delaine, the great-grandson of the founder of Delaine Buses.  After an interesting talk about how the company started and the developments in bus design, we had a tour of the museum and spotted some really old buses. In the depot, we saw where the buses fill up with fuel and even got to see one bus have its brakes tested. Our final treat, before returning to school, was a ride through the bus wash. The children really impressed all the adults with their super listening, fantastic questions and wonderful behaviour throughout.
